Guns N’ Roses is welcoming a Texas gun store to the legal jungle, where the fun and games have been replaced by lawsuits and alleged trademark infringement.

According to documents obtained by People, Axl Rose and company are suing Texas Guns and Roses, alleging that the firearms and ammo proprietor is copying the band’s name “for the purpose of confusing consumers into believing that it was connected or associated with, or licensed by, GNR.” 

“This is particularly damaging to GNR given the nature of defendant’s business,” the suit reads. “GNR, quite reasonably, does not want to be associated with defendant, a firearms and weapons retailer.”

Neither Guns N’ Roses nor Texas Guns and Roses have responded to People‘s request for comment.

In 2019 Guns N’ Roses filed a trademark lawsuit against a brewery that was selling a beer called Guns ‘N’ Rosé.
